FreeBASIC (very) experimental snap package

I have made an experimental snap package of FreeBASIC. The reason I did this is because I want to migrate to Lubuntu 20.04, but I still need to compile programs that run on older distros. Currently binaries compiled with standard fbc on *ubuntu 20.04, won't run on 18.04 or older because of the GLIBC...

Re: (L)Ubuntu Focal Fossa (20.04) and libtinfo.so.5

Are you talking about building a binary on 20.04 and wanting to run it on older distros? What problems are you having building fbc on 18.04? I think statically linking libtinfo is just fine. Soon I will have to drop 18.04 and use only 20.04. But I still need my binaries to run on 18.04 and older. M...

Re: (L)Ubuntu Focal Fossa (20.04) and libtinfo.so.5

I just built FBC 1.07 on my Centos 8 machine. I had to install the ncurses compatibility libraries to get my old bootstrap version of fbc to run. After building, the fbc compiler, runtime, and subsequent compiled executables all link against libtinfo.so.6, as I would expect. FBC is using the system...

Re: (L)Ubuntu Focal Fossa (20.04) and libtinfo.so.5

Couldn't get it to compile with a different glibc. I miss the old standalone fbc. When I compile from 18.04, the executables are compatible down tô 14.04 if I'm not mistaken. It's been a while since such breakage hapenned. A VM is a solution. I will only need it for the final buils anyway. Maybe I c...

Re: (L)Ubuntu Focal Fossa (20.04) and libtinfo.so.5

Thinking out loud here. What if you ship 'libtinfo.so.5' with the game, would that work? Yes, I think I'll need to do that. It means I'll have to ship it with a runner script to set the libpath and load. Also if I'm going to stick to 20.04, I need to figure out how to compile using the older libs. ...

Re: (L)Ubuntu Focal Fossa (20.04) and libtinfo.so.5

Often you need only a symbolic link that points to libtinfo.so (in case the libtinfo.so.6 is in /usr/lib/) sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libtinfo.so.5 /usr/lib/libtinfo.so.6 Joshy Good suggestion! I thought about that too, and did it, but I got: ./yagac-linux-x86_64: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libtinfo.so.5: vers...

(L)Ubuntu Focal Fossa (20.04) and libtinfo.so.5

Hello, I'm testing Lubuntu 20.04 Focal Fossa beta, and I have bumped into a small problem running my fbc compiled programs. They all need 'libtinfo.so.5', but *Ubuntu 20.04 ships with 'libtinfo.so.6'. It's still possible to install package libtinfo5 and satisfy the requirement, but this could be a p...

Re: Freebasic is not smooth in graphics

I agree. That's why I use OpenGL instead of fbgfx. The learning curve is a little steeper, but it's pretty smooth. Check out NeHe tutorials. (examples/graphics/OpenGL/NeHe) You can activate vsync using extensions: https://www.freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=13715&p=119261&hilit=v...

Simple Steamworks API usage

This is a code fragment from my game ' Iceroyds! '. Only basic Steamworks usage and achievements are covered. Works both on Linux and Windows. IMPORTANT: This code will only work with the Steamworks libraries version 1.35a #define steam_build #define steam_appid 999999 'your steam appid here #define...

Re: Iceroyds!

Congratulations Landeel! I just got my game on steam as well. One thing I'm curious about is how you managed to get steam achievements integrated? Hey, Congratulations!!! I had to use a specific version of the steam dll. 1.35 if I'm not mistaken. I'm on trip right now, very far from my dev pc. I ca...

Re: Iceroyds!

I am really impressed with everything you have done! I do hope that you keep us all updated as to how your game does on Steam - I have been wondering how much money such a project might earn and yours is a great test case. I'm not sure it's the best test case. It's a couch game in an online era. Ma...

Re: Iceroyds!

Nice. If you tell people you write games as a hobby, they might think: "Games? Isn't that something for children?" But in reality, you need to be good at mathematics, physics, art (graphical, sound/music and overall design), psychology (what do people like), marketing (how to get people t...

Re: Iceroyds!

Congrats! That's quite an amazing feat! I liked it very much (reminded me of some great moments I've spent with my sisters when I was a teenager, playing Crash Bash), and I know exactly with whom I'll be spending time with it (my ex and my daughter; it's going to be quite fun!) Hey, thanks for your...
